Mooooooooooooooooooooooooos

Had it chalked in a couple of places for the prologue.

Moos went in the last fifteen or so people. I got the crowd worked up a little by randomly screaming 'MOOS' every once in a while for the last ten minutes before he came by....

When he did come by, everyone within about fifty yards of me - both sides of the road - was screaming 'MOOOOOOOOOOOOS'. I hope he heard it, I know it's tough at 30 MPH.

That was yelled out when he went by us during the Prologue. The biggest grin came over his face. It was a delight to see.

It's pronounced mose, as in most without the T.

I'll talk to him tomorrow or Saturday and ask him if he notices any extra attention.
